Yes,
I use it all the time.....
Just select the telescope from the drop down list and similarly for your camera - you can also select a suitable target object to better visualize the FOV
It then gives the plate scale and the possible FOV.
If your telescope or camera are not listed you can manually enter the details....

Do you have a particular issue????
